Red Clay Creek
Red Clay Creek is a 13.6-mile-long (21.9 km) tributary of White Clay Creek, running through southeastern Pennsylvania and northern Delaware in the United States. As of 2000, portions of the creek are under wildlife habitat protection.
The East and West branches both rise in West Marlborough Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, near the hamlet of Upland, and flow south through Kennett Square before uniting just north of the Delaware border. The stream enters Delaware near the town of Yorklyn and flows southward through New Castle County, passing through Marshallton. White Clay Creek empties into Red Clay Creek near Stanton, approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) southwest of Wilmington. Ultimately, Red Clay Creek enters the Christiana River, also near Stanton.

Since 2000, portions of the river, along with other tributaries of White Clay Creek, have been protected as part of the White Clay Creek Wild and Scenic River.

- The U.S. Geological Survey citation and the Boyd, William citation conflict on which is a tributary of the other, White Clay Creek or Red Clay Creek. The text of the article reflects the U.S. Geological Survey information; Boyd indicates that White Clay Creek is a tributary of Red Clay Creek and that it is Red Clay Creek which flows into the Christina (Christiana) River.
